In a TV interview, the supposedly non-political arbiter of justice in the District of Columbia, Attorney General Karl Racine, hinted that President Trump, his son Don Jr., and attorney Rudy Guiliani could potentially face criminal charges.
The New York Post reports:
In an interview with “Good Morning America,” DC Attorney General Karl Racine, whose office is investigating dozens of rioters, laid the blame at the feet of the president for his fiery speech to supporters before many of them invaded Congress.
“I think the question is, how far up does it go? Clearly the Capitol was ground central in all of this mob’s behavior,” Racine said.
Donald Trump Jr., Giuliani, even the president of the United States, were calling on their supporters and hate groups to go to the Capitol and in the words of Rudy Giuliani ‘exercise combat justice,’” he went on.
“We’re going to investigate not only the mobsters but also those who invited the violence.”
My first question is why Mr. Racine is on TV, spouting off about possible criminal charges? Is that how he runs his office, discussing his constitutional law enforcement decisions on national TV instead of making a sober, professional and impartial judgment far from the limelight?
My second question is who is he calling hate groups and mobsters? Those are loaded political terms, and it sure seems like Mr. Racine has tried and convicted a lot of people in his head already, before the trial. Certainly, most of the people listening to the Trump’s speeches were not hate groups or mobsters, but American citizens who protested in a peaceful manner.
Unfortunately, DC is full of desperate wannabes, clawing their way to their pathetic 15 minutes of fame. Mr. Racine appears to be one of them.
He shouldn’t be anywhere near a position of power and responsibility. You can read the full story here.
